Folks, John Boehner and the GOP leadership is an unmitigated disaster. Ever since election night, these idiots have misread the results. They are blaming the loss on everything except the fact that over three million voters stayed home. Three million conservative voters. These voters stayed home due to the fact that Romney, rightly so, was not conservative. Every election cycle we hear of how we need to put up a candidate who can reach the "middle". To these wizards, this means a "moderate" candidate. Nearly every time the GOP does this, they get their butts handed to them. Ford, Bush I, Dole, McCain, and now Romney. The problem isn't that the message is too conservative, it's that it's not conservative enough!
Now we have Boehner and the rest of these statist Republicans telling Americans that they are going to expand government, but at a slower rate than the Democrats.
John Boehner, Eric Cantor,and the rest of the current GOP leadership need to be removed from their positions of power and marginalized.
Whether it's Jim DeMint, or some other conservative in Congress, a coalition has to be put together by them to purge this cancer that has infected the modern day GOP.
Boehner tax increase sparks conservative backlash

Sen. Jim DeMint, a tea party favorite, ripped House Republican leaders for offering a budget framework that embraced new taxes, saying the GOP plan to raise $800 billion in new revenue would hurt the economy, kill jobs and not reduce the national debt by a penny.
"This isn't rocket science," Mr. DeMint, South Carolina Republican, said. "Everyone knows that when you take money out of the economy, it destroys jobs, and everyone knows that when you give politicians more money, they spend it. This is why Republicans must oppose tax increases and insist on real spending reductions that shrink the size of government and allow Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money."
